Anybody who has ever followed the fascinating world of World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) for any period of time knows who Kane is — the ‘big red’ evil machine that’s the ‘brother’ of the phenom known as The Undertaker.
If you only watch him in WWE you might be surprised to learn that Kane has been in politics for a while now and is now a mayor of an entire city in his home state of Tennessee.
Glenn Jacobs, as he’s known in real life, was recently elected to the post of mayor of Knox County, Tennessee.
Jacobs, a Republican, beat off competition from Democrat Linda Haney, comfortably winning with over 66% of the vote.
He would be sworn into office on the 1st of September.
Standing at 6’8” and weighing 323 Ilbs, Kane is not your average politician. A WWE Superstar since 1995, he’s generally considered one of the top tier of wrestlers to have ever appeared for the world leader in sport entertainment.
Kane is a former 3 time world champion, a 12 time tag team champion and only the third man to complete WWE’s Grand Slam of titles.
He also holds the record for most cumulative Royal Rumble eliminations at 44 and residents of Knox County can only hope his political career ends up at least half as good as his wrestling career.
